    I think we will sign DWZ or at least I hope so, only 20 years old, reps kiwis, plays centre, fullback and wing. Ideal signing for our team.

        Turbo1 didn't you say we were getting Daniel Tupo as well !!! seems like a lot of wingers (Wright, Wright, Tafua, Uate, DWZ,Wiliame etc).... maybe Uate is literally replacing Jamie Buhrer in the second row .... (TIC)

          I don't think Tupou will happen tbh. And Taufau, Uate, Wright and Wright are the only legitimate wingers. DWZ and Williame are centres/fullbacks.

            I was going to make this thread last night but then the news of Buhrer came out. I waited until everything calmed down ;)

            He has played the majority of his football on the wing. Pretty sure he's never played centre

            Our backs were our weakness last season. I haven't read anything to make me think we'll have a backline capable of scoring enough points to make 2017 any different.

              Played juniors at fullback and he definitely played centre, maybe last year or the year before but I remember him playing centre.

                  If you could somehow wrangle Tupou & DWZ (along with Uate), our backline could actually be pretty damned potent.

                  01. Tom Trbojevic
                  02. Daniel Tupou
                  03. Dallin Watene-Zelezniac
                  04. Dylan Walker
                  05. Akuila Uate
                  06. Blake Green
                  07. Daly Cherry-Evans

                  (Obviously if Brett Stewart / Steve Matai don't go around again, and Taufua remains unsigned).

                      Ryan, that backline kicks arse. But I'd like to keep Jorge on the wing.

                        I'd struggle to see find a better quality backline in the NRL to be honest. Jorge is off contract, so I'd say if that WERE our backline, we'd need as much $$$$$ as possible.

                          We can't compete with the Roosters offer of $80,000 :think: a season.
